Center point awareness visit
Community awareness orientations are among the activities under the social marketing of the Utwe pride campaign. The purposes of these orientations were to increase the level of knowledge within the community about the importance of the MPA; increase the knowledge about the MPA boundaries and to gain support from the community to respect the MPA rules and regulations.
On August 30th 2013, the campaign manager and the project team conducted an awareness orientation targeting the Center Point, one of the hamlets in Utwe municipality. After three presentations carried out by the project team, a 30 minute was set out for general discussions and questions. Most of the discussions and comments from the participants were very supportive for the campaign. Moreover, they expressed their desire for continuation of this awareness program.
